Unauthorised item in the bagging area. Tuesday, 31 October Hemidemisemiquaver. Steve Cobby's new album, Hemidemisemiquaver, came out last Friday. I've been living with it for a few days while also waiting for pay day so I can order the double vinyl and can report that it is excellent. From the liquid funkiness of opener Jenkem to the inventive electro of The Canyons Of Lower Manhattan, the dub stylings of Babylon On The Hudson to the downtempo Balearic drift of Fixing The Shadows, it never disappoints and frequently delights, showcasing Steve's love of sound and attention to detail, the little twists and turns he puts in, the joy and the adventure.

Liberian Girl - DJ Danny Dee - Best Of Michael Jackson Blends difficult to keep up. Pulsing synth Tick Tock - CJ Mackintosh / Terry Farley & Pete Heller* - Colours - The Full Spectrum , echo on the drums, and then joined by a spaced out, slightly folky vocal.
Magical stuff. Posted by Swiss Adam at 2 comments:. Labels: gulphalina ricejohn harrisrichard norris. Weatherall presenting us with two hours of tunes old and new. As you were, as Our Kid keeps saying. Posted by Swiss Adam at 8 comments:. Labels: andrew weatherall. Saturday, 28 October Temple.
I've written before about Swedish producer Paresse and his slow motion, glacial tracks, landing somewhere between Balearic house and Italian disco via Stockholm.
He has a new ep, Sloth Machine, out soon on Belgium's Eskimo records- truly criss-crossing Europe here aren't we? The four track ep has been led off by this one, Temples, a throbbing bass, some cosmic synths, plenty of atmosphere and a general sense of forward momentum. The artwork, fromis titled La Paresse. In French, a propensity to do nothing, a reluctance to work or make an effort. Lounging around on the bed with no clothes on tickling a cat would qualify. I guess it also explains the title Sloth Machine.
Labels: paresse. Friday, 27 October Money Dealers. Let's end the week with some dub, a previously unreleased track from On-U Sound about to be part of a Dub Syndicate vinyl re-issue set first four albums and a cd anthology box Ambience Dub This is a heavy duty, wandering slice of Sherwood dub with Bim Sherman's vocals floating above the rhythms. Echo, reverb, hisses, wobbles, sounds dropping in and out.
Friday has come and it's not a second too soon. Posted by Swiss Adam at 5 comments:. Labels: adrian sherwoodbim shermanbryn celli ddudubdub syndicateon u sound. Thursday, 26 October Fearless. In June Richard Fearless put out a 12" single with an A-side that I've been returning to ever since, a high quality piece of modern techno called Sweet Venus. The other side of the single was this, a thumping piece of acid techno, hypnotic and repetitive. The sort of track where attention to detail is utmost- lovely oscillating synths, crisp drums and the cymbals are a total joy in themselves.
It just glides by. Solar Plexus is a ten minute exploration of drone and frequencies. It's too insistent to be ambient. You'll either love it or it'll do your head in. Labels: pentre ifanrichard fearlessvon haze. Back at the start of the year Kelly Lee Owens released an album of woozy, slightly off kilter dance music songs. It was stuck to my turntable for a while and will be dug out again before the end of the year. Kelly has reworked a new Tick Tock - CJ Mackintosh / Terry Farley & Pete Heller* - Colours - The Full Spectrum by Mount Kimbie, a dance music duo who started in dubstep and moved elsewhere- ambient electronica, future garage.
The result is right up my street, a repetitive echoey sound to open and a single kick drum, and then several minutes of build, layers of sound on top of each. When the bass hits at two minutes everything gets spaced out a bit.
The echoey, keening sound comes back with some pow-pows. By the time the vocal comes in at four minutes you're well away, transported elsewhere. Blissful stuff. Posted by Swiss Adam at 4 comments:. Labels: kelly lee owensmount kimbierollright stones. The instruments come in one by one, the quicktime drums and melodic bass then rhythm guitar, followed by keys and lead guitar, and finally Robert Smith's lyrics and thin vocals, inspired by a trip to Beachy Head with Mary.
Smith says it is about 'kissing and fainting to the floor' and that sense of giddy weightlessness crosses over into the music. Posted by Swiss Adam at 3 comments:.
Labels: dinosaur jrmelody makerthe cure. Monday, 23 October No State. Godspeed You! Black Emperor have a new album out, Luciferian Towers, another state of the world address and an attempt to topple global capitalism with noisy instrumental music. If you are familiar with their back catalogue there's nothing here that will especially surprise you but the power, drama Cagliostro In Wien - Johann Strauß*, Capella Istropolitana, Josef Stolz - Cagliostro In Wien intensity in the playing are as impressive as they've always been.

M. B. I. Announcers Trio)* - In M cannot save your world from being ravished by Galactus! The opening track from State's album 90 is the first track on the memory stick in the family car at the moment. Dead stop. I'm away overnight and haven't had the time to write anything for tomorrow so it's a rare Sunday off at Bagging Area.
Enjoy your weekend. Labels: statecomicsgalactusjohn buscemamarvelvanessa daou. Silver Surfer again, exploding out of deep space and bringing with him Galactus, devourer of worlds. But the Surfer makes his choice, the surfer stands with earth! More good news for the people of planet earth, there is a new release from Finiflex some of Finitribe. Origination, the nine minute, full length one is the one I'm going back to most, but the low slung, hypnotic throb of TX20 Agent Of Intelligence is a treat too.
I really like this e. EP by Finiflex. And as a bonus, just in case you needed reminding, here is one of 's best releases. Loud and clear.

From 's Black Sheep album, some prime recent Julian Cope. More from the Marvel Third Eye series, these ones are all by Jack Kirby I think, but its the colourist who's getting most of Bumpin - Dis N Dat - Freak Me Baby fun- The Infinity Man, an acid trip in spandex; the Silver Surfer, freed and unbound; magnificent Medusa.
This is their single that inspired its own tribute song by Chris Sievey and the Freshiesotherwise known as Timperley's own Frank Sidebottom.

I'd love to explain what's going on here but I can't so if anyone knows please put something in the comment box.
Jack Kirby in full on, all the way up to 11, everything louder than everything else, Marvel psychedelic mode. It's by Is. The voice at the start is Lux Interior from The Cramps. It's a little less frenetic than what's going Tick Tock - CJ Mackintosh / Terry Farley & Pete Heller* - Colours - The Full Spectrum in the picture but could easily soundtrack us sonic and sci fi adventurers as we cruise past by the giant hand with a brain in it, an eye on the wrist and yellow beams shooting from the fingertips.
